Tom Cruise...What Were You Thinking?!
Sunday, July 17, 2005

Ah, the summer movie season...time for old failed romances to come to light in the faces of new ones.

See, this whole blog is inspired by spending too much time in grocery checkout lines. All those cheap rags by the counter touting this relationship and that. I would never pick up any of those, but it's hard to ignore the covers.

For starters, Katie Holmes is hot...no doubt about it. And she's comparatively young...she has that going for her as well.

But dammit if there just isn't something about Nicole Kidman that's simply intoxicating. You can just see her on a magazine cover and swoon...become all light-headed and stuff! Like, I don't even know that I can identify exactly what about her causes that reaction, but it's there! It's a moment like this:

*gasp* =pause= Oh my. :)

And it's not just movie starts that have that quality. Every now and then I'll notice someone on the street or a co-worker or whatever and have that moment. It's kind of a weird endorphin rush (which, granted, happens every time I see my wife).

So Tom, I can understand the attraction to Katie, but what the hell were you thinking giving up on Nicole like that!

Truthfully, I think it's her nose. Nicole's nose is uber-cute.

I agree that Nicole is stunning in an almost inhuman way, but I remember having my doubts as to whether their relationship would last. Years ago. I'd see them on TV or on magazine covers and I noticed that he was always looking at her, she was always looking at the cameras. So, I don't know what happened to them, of course, but I've always had a sneaking suspicion that she was the one that wanted out.
And I also agree that Tom does seem to have gone off the deep end. Midlife crisis?

I'm all for the girl-next-door look, but I gotta say I prefer Nicole. She does take your breath away, doesn’t she?

I know what you mean about average folk taking your breath away. I met a young woman in a bar once and she blew my mind. Just captivating. I couldn’t help being drawn to her and in awe of her at the same time. I work with a guy like that. He lights up the room. I’ve been known to break into ‘One” when he walks into the room.

I don't know what Tom or Nicole was thinking, but it ended and now he's insane. If Katie likes him that way then bless her little heart. I couldn't handle it.

Well, I've seen NK in interviews and she does seem like a raging b***h. TC has become rather... insane and that probably played a role in the breakup. But, Ecgordon has a good point. Her leaving him, him leaving her, who knows?

With regards to NK being intoxicating. What I find interesting is that this quality is seperate from the physical beauty. ie Whatever actress that played Daisy on Dead Like Me, although not bad looking is not stunning (physically speaking). But, she just has that quality about her.

I think we should start a study ;)

What makes you think it was him giving up on her?
